I have to say this recipe is something special to my husband and me. We went to a B&B for Valentine's weekend and in the morning we woke up with snow on the ground. Umm, it never snows in this area. Also the sweet smell of raspberries and coffee in the air. We walked down and saw all the breakfast goodies on the table and coming out of the kitchen was the Raspberry and Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast ... oooo, was soooo good. That was the last yummy before we started out a new path in our lives of losing weight and living healthier lives. Hope you all enjoy.

If you need an easy and decadent French toast recipe look no further. The savory cream cheese paired with the raspberries is amazing. Add warm maple syrup when serving, and it's a delicious combination. Baking this stuffed French toast is so incredibly easy. The outside gets slightly crisp. The filling inside melts and is warm and gooey with chunks of raspberries. Yum!

How To Make raspberry and cream cheese stuffed french toast

Test Kitchen Tips
We used Brioche and it was the perfect texture. Challah would be lovely too.
  • Cream cheese spread on bread.
    Spread cream cheese evenly over one side of each slice of bread.
  • Raspberries placed on top of the cream cheese.
    Top half of slices of the slices with raspberries. Top with remaining bread slices - cream cheese sides down - to make "sandwiches".
  • Eggs, half-and-half, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a bowl.
    Combine beaten eggs, half-and-half, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a shallow bowl. (For added taste, you might want to add a few drops of Grand Marnier.)
  • Bread dipped in egg mixture.
    Dip each sandwich in egg mixture, turning carefully to coat both sides.
  • Coated bread in a baking dish.
    Place sandwiches in greased 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
  • French toast baking in the oven.
    Bake in a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown, turning once after 10 minutes.
  • Raspberry and Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast with syrup.
    Serve warm with maple syrup if desired. NOTE: If desired, you can substitute frozen raspberries. Thaw and drain; reserve juice for another use.
